They’re called salmon fritters, patties, or croquettes. I call them a nutritious entree from the pantry. Easy to make, all you need is a sleeve of crackers (crushed finely), two eggs, a tablespoon of minced onions, and a can of salmon.
Preheatyour favorite skillet and spray lightly with cooking spray. Form patties, cook 10 minutes or until browned on one side, flip patties and cook an additional 5 minutes, and serve with your favorite steamed vegetables.
Each 2 ounce patty is 31 gram protein and about 162 calories. Enjoy!

Growing your own herbs indoors and blending your own spices with them is a rewarding hobby with a lot of tangible rewards. Store-bought herbs, spices, and blends can get expensive, especially if they’re organic — and if they’re not, they may contain pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

It’s the holiday season. Usually this means holiday gatherings and covered dish dinners, but in 2020 … not so much. Yet I am always gathering ideas and recipes for easy, make-ahead mealsfor a crowd or a few.
Today I made one I call Philly-Cheese Casserole. You can modify this versatile dish in many ways to suit your tastes. Just follow the basics: Layer potatoes, ground meat, aromatic vegetables, and top with cheese. Bake covered at 350°F for 70-75 minutes.
1 pound potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4”
1 pound ground Chuck*
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 pepper, thinly sliced
1 large can diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
Optional: parsley for garnish
*Don’t go too lean on the ground meat. The fat contentworks to flavor the casserole. There is no added fat or liquid in this dish.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a casserole dishlayer potato slices on the bottom. Salt and pepper.
Add the ground Chuck. Salt and pepper.
Layer peppers and onions atop the meat. Salt and pepper.
Spread the canned diced tomatoes.
Top casserole with the shredded cheese.
Cover and bake for 75 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Remove casserole from oven, uncover, and allow it to cool 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
Casseroles like this one canbe made ahead a day or even frozen. Just give an extra 5 minutes baking time.
